I have a Server installed as a Primary Domain Controller - I have added a second server installed as a Secondary Domain Controller, which does most of the heavy lifting. The PDC System logs are getting regular error entries indicating there is a problem with the IDE drivers for the board. I have an ASUS P5Q SE motherboard. I am running SATA drives set up as a RAID-1 in software. I have already replaced the SATA data cables (part of Microsoft's Help Center solutions), but the errors continue. I have searched ASUS (their site was vveeeerryy slow), and can only find a BIOS upgrade. I have also searched DriverGuide.com with no success. Where can I find specific drivers to resolve this error? Here are the error details from the System Log:

That controller error noted...might merit a diagnostic on the drive in question, if not both.

The RAID-1 configured drives are WDC WD1600JS (160GB). I guess I should go to Western Digital for the diagnostics utilities, right?

Yes, I suggest that you use Western Digital Diagnostic Utility as the hard drive is WD.

You should find the Utility on their web site.

Run the long test, not the short.

I have already replaced the SATA data cables (part of Microsoft's Help Center solutions), but the errors continue.


Please read the first post before asking anymore questions.

You said you are having IDE Drive issues with the IDE Drives yet Replacing the SATA Cables do not impact IDE Performance. Please replace the IDE Cables since that is part of the computer you having issues with.
